University - The Particular

Learning amid pictures: what kind of university is decorated with pictures in the lecture hall? This is where our Mission Statement, which is part of our philosophy, finds expression: we are a young, vibrant, teaching and learning university and want to create a pleasant, constructive and promoting learning atmosphere for our students.

This is made possible through the transfer of expertise and knowledge in small study groups with a maximum of 35 students, enabling the teaching staff to use innovative teaching and learning approaches and to supervise students intensively and individually.

Study Programme - Main Focus

The guiding principle of "theoria cum praxi" of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, the school's namesake, is reflected in the degree programmes offered by the Leibniz-FH: ambitious junior staff as well as specialists from the private sector benefit from a close dovetailing of theory and practice, thanks to a combination of classroom learning and on-the-job learning. The range of courses offered by the Leibniz-FH includes part-time, full-time and dual degree programmes in the fields of business administration and IT.

Background - The Insight

We actively promote the transfer of theory to practice, and vice versa! Computer programming, drawing up marketing concepts or developing process optimisation concepts: at the FH Leibniz – School of Business, project management is an integral part of the curriculum. Groups of 5 to 35 students tackle real-world project assignments from business and industry following the lecture on Project Management Theory. Over a period of one year, students themselves are responsible for preparing these assignments independently, guided by supervisors at the School and practitioners in the field.

What's special here?

Albert Einstein, Thomas Mann, Boris von Münchhausen and Gerhart Hauptmann all gave lectures at the Leibniz Academy during regularly organised special events attended by prominent scientists and artists. In line with this tradition, the Leibniz Dialogues still take place regularly, giving researchers, executives from business practice and students the opportunity to engage in discussion.
